Rain and storms will stick around for the start of the week

2 min read

The WUSA9 Weather Watch team is tracking multiple rounds of rain and storms over the next few days. Some storms could be strong and even severe.

WASHINGTON — We are in for a very unsettled stretch of weather over the next several days. A stationary front draped across the Mid-Atlantic will allow multiple waves of rain and storms to pass through the region on Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday. The positioning of the front will also allow for very variable temperatures. Plan on milder days in our southern counties and chillier temperatures the farther north you are.

Rain will develop late Sunday night and stick around for the Monday morning commute. Plan on periods of heavy rain, especially north of I-66 through 10 a.m. Areas south of I-66 will stay a bit drier with just a few passing showers and areas of light rain.

There will be plenty of dry hours on Monday with otherwise overcast skies. The Nationals home opener should be just fine. Not the nicest day for a ball game with cloudy skies, but temperatures will still be seasonably mild in the low 60s.

Plan on more showers and periods of rain Tuesday morning into the afternoon. There will be some breaks in the action, but Tuesday will be wetter than Monday.

We’re closely monitoring a line of storms in the afternoon that have the potential to be strong and possibly severe. The Storm Prediction Center has placed most of the DMV under a level 2 out of 5 risk for severe weather. The biggest threats will be damaging wind, hail, and even a few isolated tornadoes.

We have one more wet day to get through Wednesday with another round of rain and showers before we finally dry out. The second half of Wednesday is looking drier than the morning, but keep an umbrella handy throughout the day.

As the storm system that will keep our weather so unsettled finally pulls away Wednesday night, the gusty wind will pick up and stick around Thursday, Friday and Saturday.
